HDR modes have taken mobile cameras to next level. 

It stacks multiple images to capture good details and reduce the noise. 

 

Power of AI is taking mobile photography to next level.

I hope AI will be implemented in DSLR (future) 

 

I'm bored of Nikon/Cannon/Sony, stopped using my DSLR from past two years. 

Want see a proper DSLR from companies like Apple, Google and Samsung.

If that's the case, Apple will kill the market with it's design which is still imaginary. I somehow surely think it won't. But, this can be very much expected from Samsung and Google :)

Check out the google nighsight. 
It is doing miracles. 

DSLRS are dead in my opinion, unless you are serious into photography.

I think these brands are happy with mobiles, they mostly won't venture into cameras, which is already a dead market.

I don't think they're miracles. A photographer goes through a lot of thought process, experiments with multiple exposure settings, angles before taking a photograph.

These phones although good are taking the essence of photography. Just a tap on the shutter button and some random filters, a photograph is made. That's the true meaning of photography. Photography is capturing memories in it's true essence. These phones are creating plastic memories.

A true manually controlled photograph is true photograph. These are just plastic ones. So not miracles anymore.

And I don't think DSLR market is a dead one. If so by now big brands like Nikon, Sony and Canon would enter into mobile phones camera.

And there's no comparison between a mobile camera and a DSLR.

Mobile is full automatic which requires no effort and feel where as DSLR is a manual one and a device that should be controlled manually with a feel towards the art.

NO OFFENSE

No offence taken my friend.

I can say that i will agree with your points to a certain extent.

 

Every device has their own advantages/disadvantages. 

I followed photography when i was young.  

 

Recently, I have seen a major shift in mobile photography. 

Most of the flagships mobiles are matching DSLRS in good light conditions.

Low light is where DSLR shine, but  Apple/Google algorithms made a huge impact in this area.  

 

 

Let me compare low light photography. 

Imagine shooting a wide area in low light, what you need from a DSLR?

 

1. Tripod stand
2. Wide angle lens
3. find a proper place to mount your stand 
4. Remote

 

With modern flagships, you can take pictures hand held. 

They are compact and you have them with you 24x7.
Quality may not be as good as DSLR but they are catching up.

In 2010, I agree that DSLR is way ahead of mobile. 

In 2020, mobiles will eat into DSLR.

Very well explained buddy.

 

But I can't imagine myself shooting with a mobile phone with all touch buttons... Just can't imagine that. The feel we get when we hold a DSLR and the mighty zoom lens and then searching an area for mounting your tripod and an amazing image and appreciation from people is a whole different thing...

 

Isn't it?

 

And yeah, thanks for taking it in a positive way.

For me it is a pain. I used to do following things before a trip.

1. Charge your camera (every day)
2. Empty your memory cards
3. Carry a bad, with two lens

4. Change lens depending on angle

5. After the trip, copy pictures to a laptop, edit the raw images using lightroom.

6. Share it on travel platforms

With mobile 
1. Point and Shoot
2. Edit it in mobile
3. Share it on travel platforms

90% of pictures are viewed on small screen, you cannot find any noise that is generated by mobile cameras.

Both are good in their own ways.
Advantages with mobiles? they are compact and easy to carry. We never miss a moment. 

Dslr on other can generates sharp images, which cannot be achieved using a mobile. 

 

I agree that people stopped buying Dslr,
They are expensive to buy,

Tough to carry.


But given a choice, I would pickup a Dslr over a mobile.

@Tapahasu Thanks, it's a wonderful country and a must visit place. Our trip was around 10-12 days,  The trip was wonderful visiting old temples, grand monuments, historical places and national parks, lakes, religious places....nepal got it all...though we went in may 2018, weather was very pleasant except in chitwan and Lumbini. we loved Pokhara. Don't Miss it :) We didn't plan for annapurna trek this time. May be some other time.

      Finally got a chance to fix my bumper scratches.

       
      Two weeks back I had small bumper damage.
      Minor bumper crack Broken clips Deep scratches
       
       
      Visited showroom:
      Replace rear bumper  Repaint rear bumper Need to order bumper Insurance claim charges Three days time (once the bumper is available)  
      From the past 15 years,
      I never gave my car outside the showroom.
      All the repaint jobs are done at showroom.
       
      Last weekend, I decided to explore lower Tankbund options.
       
      I contacted my friend who live around that area,
      He said most of them does the work well.
       
      We picked a shop that my friend visits for bumper repairs. 
       
      Quote given was 1200/-
      I was in shock :p (my aim was to get it done under 2.5k)
      Price was too tempting to leave,
      I gave a go ahead without any bargain.
       
      Steps
      Reached paint booth at 10AM They remove the fuel cap Took it to paint shop  Got the color premixed They applied some Patti Some rubbing work done Removed tail lamp Fixed the broken bumper clamp Tail lamp fixed back  
      It was like a war zone, 5 members working on it.
      He spotted few scratches on front bumper Asked me another 300/- to fix :o I gave a go ahead Masked all the parts They sprayed 4 different types of paints At 11AM it is done and I out  
      Pros:
      Cheap Quick 100% colour matching Cons:
      Long term reliability Not so professional Ideal for only bumper damages Finishing is not so great, I can feel some rough edges.  
      Ideal place to fix scratches for a 5+ year old cars.
      For new cars it is always better to claim the insurance and fix it. (If you need professional quality)
       
      Removed the fuel cap to get the correct paint

      Applied some patti

      Removed the tail lamp to fix the bumper clamps from inside (to avoid external screws)
      Rubbing is done.

      Had few bumper scratches at the front corner,
      Shop owner asked for another 300/- bucks to fix it, since the paint will be left over.
      I gave a go ahead. 

      They sprayed around 4-layers

      Let the pint dry

      Final output : Front bumper

      Rear bumper

       
      Once I get time,
      I will click pictures in the sunlight for the analysis.

      What is this BOCH: This group was created to provide a platform for Baleno owners from Hyderabad to share and seek information about various aspects like sales, service, warranty, insurance, accessories, modifications et al, and also to engage in frequent meet ups. These meets have helped immensely in knowing each other and also to strengthen the bond among group members. We hope to continue to organize these meet-ups as long as we can. Now the group's count is 160 plus members.
       
      Prelude:
      After the 6th BOCH meet, we decided that we would be taking a long break and no more meetups anytime soon. That was in mid Novermber 2018.  But, as they say, men will be men, and rules are meant to be broken. And so we did exactly that in little over two month's time and completed the 7th meet on January 26, 2019.  And also, 8th meet is not too very far away, planning it in March. So this just goes to show 'the more that you resist the tide, the more it pulls you in'.  It is such an amazing Baleno group with enthusiastic guys who are always ready to meet and explore.
       
      Preparation:
      Unlike our previous short meets, the 6th meet was a special one where we had spent the whole day in a resort. So the plan for the 7th meet was to stretch it for two days with overnight stay and return the next day.  While looking at options, a member shared the travelogue of India-Drive night camping at Koilsagar (done in 2017). Many members showed interest in this and we immediately put the plan into action. With date decided, I did a quick recce of the place. We calculated per-head cost if we take camp tents for rent and carry food. Everyone volunteered to share responsibilities. But the main concern and challenge was to organize night camping (especially with ladies and families involved) at an unknown lake with a large group. We had our apprehensions about permission, locals and security.  So we contacted India-Drive admins and took all the details of the organizer (Hyderabad Adventure & Trekker's club).  After discussing with HAT's club, they agreed to do our event and it proved to be a wise decision in the end. Though the pricing was a tad high but without them we could have lost and wouldn't have enjoyed the way we did. The package included T3 tents for 2 members, dinner, astronomy session and early morning trekking.  As a complimentary, they agreed to shoot our trip without any additional charge. Thanks to Mr.Dheeraj for wonderful arrangements.
       
      Itinerary:
      Reach M Food Court (1st meeting point) located around 75 km from Hyderabad and 13 km after Raikal toll plaza by 2:00 pm. Reach Deverakadra and stop for drone shooting. Reach Koilsagar and search for camp site and sunset shoot. Introduction of members and organizers. Pitch tents and campfire. Followed by Dinner, BBQ, astronomy session and star gazing. At 6:30 am, early morning trekking to nearby hill By 9:30 am, return journey to Hyderabad.  
      How Things Went:
      The day before the meet, Hyderabad city had plunged into gloominess with not so good weather forecast the next day. We were worried about rain at the venue and it may play spoilsport to the event. To our dismay, it started to downpour on the meetup day as soon as we reached outer ring road. So we thought the trip is going to be a dampner.  Luckily, it stopped raining as we were out of the city though it remained gloomy till 1st meeting point.  All the members reached M Food Court before 2 pm (thanks to all for being punctual), but organizers were nearly 45 min late to arrive. We could only continue our journey from M Food court towards Koilsagar at 3:15 pm as opposed to itinerary time 2:15 pm.
       
      Around 4:30 pm, we reached Deverakadra mandal and for about 30-40 min we had drone shooting, line up of Balenos and photo session. We reached camp site at 5:30 and scouted for a nice place to pitch tents and park our big convoy. There were some places already occupied by some others, but we managed to find a decent place. Everything went as planned after that like campfire, BBQ, astronomy session and star gazing, dinner followed by surprise activity with our Balenos, other shoots and of course lots of fun.  Many members were awake till 3 to 5 am (I slept at 3 am) with everlasting discussions.  Luckily, there wasn't a single drop of rain until the next day and we were so relieved for that.
       
      Next morning, by the time we completed our trekking to a nearby hill, it was nearly 9:30 am and it started to drizzle. A few members had fun drifting their cars for 10 minutes in those wet conditions, and finally we bid adieu to Koilsagar - what was a memorable trip!
       
      What We (and I) Missed:
      We could not shoot with drone at camp site because of low light. Forgot to take group pics though we had some pics taken during introductory session. I could not take my Baleno to the trip as our colony road dug up for laying new drainage pipes.😡  
      I let the pictures speak the rest:
       
      Dark clouds looming overhead with rain:

       
      Line up of Balenos at M Food Court attracted quite a few eyes:

      Being a part of this wonderful BOCH group and leading it was quite a learning experience for me.  Needless to mention, it enabled me to meet other Baleno owners and avid car lovers from different walks of life. I hope our bond becomes even more stronger as we grow bigger as a group, and embark on many more journeys.
      Hope you liked this short travelogue. Keep traveling and happy motoring!
